If You Truly Love Your Friend

How can your friend and his enemy

Stay together in your heart?

Your friend will not tolerate it.

Therefore, if you truly love your friend,

Let him alone stay inside your heart.

I am sure you know who your friend is

And who his enemy is.

Your friend is nectar-faith.

Your friend’s enemy is doubt-poison.
